Surfing at Godrevy

The surf at Godrevy, Cornwall

The north Cornish coast is famed for its surfing beaches.

Godrevy is very popular and works through most tides. It has a reputation of being a soft breaking wave and good for learner surfers. This is fairly true as it misses a bit of south westerly swell angle which hits the Cornish coastline.  But when the swell is over 4ft and the wind is anything other than perfect (light, offshore) it can be a really long and challenging paddle to get out the back. Like most beach breaks it relies heavily on the quality of its sand banks to provide long walled up rides. Perfect place to surf if you like sharing the line up with friendly seals.
